What Are We Paying For?
Once upon a time, we engineered a split from Sinn Féin, and it proceeded to hang the IRA. Sinn Féin never tired of pointing out that Fianna Fáil was "a British proxy", and only stopped doing so on itself becoming one in recent years. Fianna Fáil fulfilled its responsibilities as our proxy, producing the corpses of IRA men to prove it. When will Sinn Féin? Irish politics can be brutal. No one needs to tell them that. Do they?
